The 2017 season is now only a few weeks away, Blue Makaira will be fishing from mid-May. 2016 was a very good season for Blue Makaira with many large Blue Marlin and other big game fish being caught off the shores of Madeira. The prospects for 2017 are looking good.

July 9th 2016. A fantastic win on the 4th July with a fish weighed in of 983lbs (446kg) for Blue Makaira in the 32nd Blue Marlin World Cup. A really great day for the crew, fisherman , Blue Makaira, Calheta and Madeira. Madeira has now taken the cup for the last two years quite an achievement.

Big Game Fishing
in the coastal waters of Madeira on ‘Blue Makaira’

 

Since the 80’s the island of Madeira off Portugal has been considered one of the best places in the World’s oceans to catch a grander Blue Marlin.

 

I am Captain Nuno Goncalves and I would like to welcome you to the opportunity to fish with us on ‘Blue Makaira’; a Big Game fishing boat working from Calheta, Madeira.

Madeira, a European island in the mid-Atlantic, is renowned for producing some of the best ‘Big Game fishing’ the World has to offer. The very size of the fish are the subject of dreams, with the average Atlantic Blue Marlin caught from our water being over 650lbs, and one in ten being a Grander, a fish of over 1000lbs. The records speak for themselves; Madeira winning the ‘Blue Marlin World Cup’ five times since its inception.

On the 4th July 2016 Captain Nuno captained Blue Makaira to win the ‘Blue Marlin World Cup’ with a Blue Marlin of 983lbs.Incredibly, this fish was the fourth-largest ever caught in World Cup history, surpassed only by the three thousand-pound-plus “granders” caught in 2010, 2004 and 1993. In another notable twist, Blue Makaira’s Capt. Nuno was the also on the winning boat for the 2015 World Cup.

 

In addition to the great Blue Marlin fishing found off the coast of Madeira, there is also White Marlin, Spearfish, Big Eye Tuna, Blue Fin Tuna, Albacore, Dorado and Wahoo to be caught, all great sport, in this spectacular Big Game Fishing destination.

 

Whether you are an experienced Game Fisher chasing that World record, fisherman hunting the moment of a lifetime, or novice, then you can expect that the Captain, crew and owner will make every endeavour to ensure your experience is fruitful, comfortable and safe aboard ‘Blue Makaira’, as we, like you, are fisherman.
